I've posted my project on another site but came across this one as well. Since I was able to find a lot of good remodel projects detailed online I figured I'd post on here as well to help out the folks out there in similar situations.
We bought a house with an older pool 2 years ago. The house was a flip and the pool was apparently in pretty rough shape. The sellers decided to acid wash and paint the pool to get it looking better but were up front about the fact that it would need to be resurfaced in the next few years.
The paint started to chip off pretty quickly but we weren't in a huge hurry to have it redone. However since we recently had a baby and a lot of our friends and family already have small children we decided it needed to be fenced in and we might as well take care of everything at once.
We decided to use The Pool Man out of Tomball. The work started last week and is moving pretty quickly. Here is the list:
New waterline tile
Pebblesheen Prism Blue
New Light Fixture
Dual Main Drain
Sundek on Existing Deck and Coping (contrasting colors)
Mesh Safety fence
We're really happy with the results thus far.
